executive order by president obama requiring local governments and federal agencies to account for climate change when they undertake big new projects. for more, we're joined from washington by margaret tolive. if we're just catching up here, what were those changes? what was the executive order saying? >> so the executive order is telling federal agencies and local governments and especially federal agencies to analyze all of the risks that climate change may have to their missions and what they do, to talk about what they are already doing and what they should be doing and sets up a task force to put all of these suggestions and recommendations together and analysis over the next nine months. >> does the forecast have any teeth or how does it work across the different agencies? >> what is interesting about this task force is it is laying down the policy inside the obama administration for the sort of stuff he can't do through congress and so the real question comes to funding. we need "x" amount of dollars to rebridge this bridge, shore up this shoreline, work on roads and infrastructure

achieve that state and then president obama would have a very unpleasant choice of military accident and letting it happen or watching israel launch a military strike. so i'll just give a few examples of the programs that -- all of the reactors we've heard a lot about and the plutonium reactor, iran promised not to build any more centrifuges and not even operate thousands that they have installed that aren't operational and they agreed to no longer enrich the 20% which was weapons grade and to reduce and ultimately eliminate that stockpile. they will be allowed to continue enriching uranium at the 3% to 5% level which is one of the nuclear reactors. at the end of the six months they're not allowed to have more of that than they do right now. iran got two things it wanted. one is the the financial sanctions that were choke the economy and about $6 billion worth and then they did get not a statement of their right to enrich, but a statement in this document here which says that the end of the whole business which could be ten or more years from now and the, p comprehensi deal, after th

counterparts. today kerry defended the obama administration's willingness to negotiate a deal that could result in the lifting of some of the economic sanctions against iran. >> we are not blind and i don't think we're stupid. i think we have a pretty strong sense of how to measure whether or not we are acting in the interests of our country and of the globe and particularly of our allies, like israel and gulf states will. >> but republican senator lindsey graham said today, lifting the sanctions would be a big mistake. >> we believe that sanctions and the threat of military force is the only thing that will bring the iranians to the table. if we back off now, i think that is exactly the wrong signal. >> following his land slide re-election last tuesday, new jersey governor chris christie made the rounds of the sunday morning talk shows and urged fellow republicans to go after typically democratic leaning minority voters. >> you go and you show up and you listen and you start to make your argument about your policies. i think the results show that what we need across the country. to listen up a

to remain in afghanistan beyond next year. in this country, during his weekly radio address, president obama said the economy is benefiting from the energy outlook. >> just this week, we learned for the first time in nearly two decades, the united states of america produces more of our own oil here at home than we buy from other countries. that's a big deal. it's a tremendous step toward american energy independence. >> the republican response, senator ron johnson ridiculed the president's apology for the botched rollout. more than 4 million americans received notices their health insurance will be cancelled despite the reassurance everyone who had it could keep it. >> they were not slight exaggerations, they were statements fully vetted, coldly calculated and carefully crafted to deceptively sell your health care plan to a trusting public. political fraud echoed by house and senate democrats. >> there's been an outbreak of meningitis in new jersey. because it's a strain not commonly found in the united states, federal authorities will allow the importation of a advocate sags approved in aus

nuclear weapons, there's a very good chance that there would be a war. president obama has made it clear that he would prevent iran from getting a nuclear weapon, israel's threshold for attack is much lower than iran moving to get a nuclear weapon. so i think if iran did that, it's going to either have to do it in a way it was not detected before they succeed. and particularly produce the weapon grade uranium for a bomb. i mean that's really their long pole the intent. once they have that they can move it and it's almost impossible to find it and the options to stop iran at that point will become much more complicated. before they have the weapon grade uranium for a bomb, sites can be enriched for a bomb. if you do it in time you can stop iran from succeeding. iran may be trying to develop the capability where it could break out and produce enough weapon grade uranium for a bomb before they are detected and that's one of the clocks ticking in this negotiation. our assessment they can reach that point as soon as mid-2014. >> david albright for institute of science and international securi
